Konadu rails against injuries



Assistant Ghana coach Maxwell Konadu is praying there are no more injuries to his players ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, after the quartet of Isaac Vorsah, Anthony Annan, Rabiu Mohammed and Albert Adomah returned to training following injuries.

Konadu is confident that a fully fit Ghana will sail through the group stage of the African finals. "We are praying that we will not be having any injuries," the former Ghana U-20 team boss said.

"We pray that nobody picks up an injury that prevents him from being part of the games. That's our only concern. We believe that if all this boys are fit, their level of readiness is unbelievable. So we just pray that nobody picks up any serious injury."

He added: "We believe we can do very well. Especially looking at the way the boys are responding to training. We have no doubts on our minds at all, if everything goes well and according to plan, we don't see how the Black Stars can't qualify from the group stages."

The Black Stars will arrive in their AFCON base in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, on Thursday and will launch their campaign for a fifth African title on Sunday against Congo DR.
